Preparing to Open the Gates

Okay, so between work and school, I haven’t had much energy to work on my side projects. Just enough to unwind. Fortunately, after next week, I’m done with school for the rest of the year and I have plenty of tasks to work on project wise. I have some aesthetic ideas for both this site and my gaming blog. Also going to finally start playing around with Unity more. I keep updating it and staring at at it going “I really need to go through some of these new tutorials”.

Another shift that I’ll be working on is trying to put myself on a consistent schedule to work on my projects throughout the week. Just need to figure out a consistent schedule I can stick to without burning myself out.

Work Overload

I’ve always had something to do at work; but due to recent project, I can’t say I’ve had much drive to do even more “work”. Granted, I don’t necessarily feel my personal projects are work; but I can’t say it is easy to focus on coding and troubleshooting logic more than 8 hours a day. Not to mention trying to switch my brain from work coding to personal coding.

Fortunately, part of my current workload is to retire three out of the four systems I’m custodian of. Retired one within the last month and another slated for this month. Albeit, the other two applications have picked up quite a bit, so that has been offsetting what I’ve been retiring. However, only having to focus on two applications verses four is much easier. Can’t say how many times I kept forgetting what components were part of what applications.

Now to see about getting back into some of my personal projects again more so. I’ve been tweaking the back-end of my journal site; but really need to start picking up other projects I keep thinking about.
